Silk sweater, silk knitting kit
A light and classic sweater in the delicate combination of tussah silk, linen and merino wool. You get a nice, soft and light sweater that fits perfectly with the Danish weather from April to October. Or that you can use during winter under a cardigan or jacket. It's fun to knit with 3 threads of yarn. The color combinations are many and each gives its own beautiful expression. Small stars can be knitted at the increases, which gives a nice graphic expression. These can be omitted if a more pure and simple expression is desired. The sleeves are designed with 3⁄4 length, but the pattern also describes how to knit long sleeves if desired. The sweater is a bit oversize at the breast width section and has a light a-shape that can be omitted.

Instructions for wash:
We recommend that you wash your Silk sweater by hand, to avoid that it changes shape or look during wash. Do not spin or dry in dryer. Dry it by laying it flat.

Should you need more yarn, additional yarn can be purchased at regular prices by placing an order and state lot number in the comment box at checkout.
